Synopsis: Through a combination of business acumen and technical innovation in the twentieth century, Danish shipping lines gradually expanded, gaining market share by undercutting less efficient rivals.In this book, the histories of Denmark's major liner companies - DFDS, EAC, Maersk and Torm - are recorded and successful innovations, particularly the development by Burmeister & Wain of reliably efficient marine diesel engines, are documented.In recent time, Danish shipping companies - particularly Maersk Line - have played major roles in bringing about the phenomenon of 'globalisation' as the switch from general cargo to shipping containers has enabled goods to be moved for long distances securely and at unprecedentedly low cost. Consequently, value chains are nowadays spread across oceans and continents. Indeed, the modern-day super-container ship, exemplified by Maersk's new Triple-E class, symbolises our contemporary world of mass production, distribution and consumerism.
